We did it: we bought a VW camping van. Twelve years ago Tom and I had our last van, an old Toyota that we camperized by taking out the bench seats and throwing some foam mats and loads of blankets back there. With two kids we needed to keep a bench seat in there and we also needed more sleeping space, so this van has a poppity top.
On Saturday we went on our first spontaneous camping trip, and it was as awesome as I’d always dreamed it would be. 30 minutes of packing and we were out the door and down the road. It doesn’t go fast but I don’t mind driving slowly and enjoying the view.
All we need now are some glowing mouse headlights on top and we’ll be all set. MEOW!
